Yuiki Takahashi

Yuiki is currently studying at the Faculty of Science, Kyoto University. In 2018, he participated in scientific research at the MIT-Harvard Center of Ultracold Atoms and the California Institute of Technology. In 2014, he won a prize at the First Step to Nobel Prize in Physics, an international competition in research projects in physics for high school students.

As of 2018, I am studying physics at the Faculty of Science, Kyoto University. I am working with particular interest in experiments in particle physics using quantum optics technology.
To date, exploration in the field of theoretical physics was done by forming high energy particles with super colliders. However, with colliders becoming even larger in recent years, we are seeing many limitations in terms of funding and facility scale. Under such conditions, forming low energy particles and taking high precision measurements of them is a complementary approach that is getting more attention.
I would like to conduct experiments in which “low-energy, high-precision” particle measurements are made with the use of quantum optics technology which have shown great progress in recent years. I hope I can get to the heart of important issues in particle physics.
